Ukweli Yetu Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy oil and boost her existing capital.

Ukweli Yetu Group's story

Madam Sifa is a client with MFI Hekima and the president of village group Ukweli Yetu. She is 51 years old, married and the mother of six children, all attending school. Her partner is a mine digger.
She sells oil, a business she started 20 years ago with seed money obtained from her husband. Subsequently, she turned to Hekima to support her business which developed gradually. With this new loan, she will buy oil and increase her existing capital. Her business challenge is linked to the poor condition of the roads.
She would like to build on her parcel and for her children to continue their education. Finally, she wishes to thank Hekima and its partners for their support to non bankable business owners in this global crisis situation due to Covid-19. Only the group's leader is pictured due to Covid-19 and to observe social distancing measures.
